Interchangability

Are the ECU and fuel pumps interchangeable between the K-70 and K-85?
I am playing musical chairs with turbines and wondered how much I'd have to relocate.

Hobby King was selling them as the Spartan. Mine flies well on a 6S setup and a Wemo rotor in the provided fan unit. No trouble with landings and handles fairly well. No too fast on 6S- around 110.
